From amazing wildlife and festivals, to scenic beauty, there’s plenty to inspire your next adventure. Read on to find out their recommendations for where to go in August…

Our pick: the best places to visit in August

1. Iceland

August sees temperatures peak in Iceland – expect the mercury to hit the high teens (and even the 20s if it’s a heatwave!). Coupled with the long hours of daylight, it makes it a fantastic time of year to tour the Land of Fire and Ice.

August is the optimum time to experience the Rocky Mountains. Not only has all the snow melted away, meaning rivers and waterfalls are full flowing, the wildflowers are in bloom, while the weather is crisp, bright and dry. You can expect clear blue skies and an abundance of wildlife.
